Film Philosophy – The Sacrifice

"The snake often means resurrection on account of the shedding of its skin. According to an African myth, there was no death on earth originally, death came by mistake. People could shed their skins every year and so they were always new, rejuvenated, until once an old woman, in a distracted condition and feeble-minded, put on and old skin again and then she died. That is the way in which death came into the world. It is again the idea that human beings were like snake originally, they did not die. The snake was always associated with death, but death out of which new life was born."
– C.G. Jung

Sisyphus – Andrew Bird (Breaks Down His Song, Sisyphus)

"The crocodile, as well as the tortoise and any other cold-blooded animal, represents extremely archaic psychology of the cold-blooded thing in us. We have a trace of it in our anatomy, in the structure of the nervous system. That is the thing we never can understand – that somewhere we are terribly cold-blooded. There are people who, under certain circumstances, would be capable of things which they simply could not admit."
– C.G. Jung
